How would you use it?

I think there are too many choices to get 100% of the possibilities, and
then people may have customized frankenstein systems, making this only
good for hinting .. I think you could catch 90% of the cases though. Mac
& Windows are pretty simple, probably only a limited number of IRIX/Solaris
releases as well to try. Linux & BSD are another story...

This will cover most people, but never all.

For debian/testing (Sarge), eg:
$ ./distro.sh 

Which doesn't tell you anything about what version of libs I have, etc.
